ICE Makes 33 Arrests In Portland This Week

ICE Makes 33 Arrests In Portland This Week

On Thursday, Immigration and Customs Enforcement announced that it had conducted a nationwide raid of so called sanctuary cities and netted the apprehension of almost 500 illegal immigrants, ICE reported in a press release.

In a news release, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials said they arrested 498 people from 42 countries during the four-day operation.

The President demanded ICE agents be allowed access to prisons and requested local governments delayed the release of illegal immigrants so that enforcement agents can arrest them.

To counter the problem, Homan said that ICE was forced to allocate more resources and conduct large-scale operations, like the one this week, in those communities. Baltimore, Los Angeles, New York, Portland, and Washington, D.C., were among the cities targeted.

A Mexican illegal immigrant in Los Angeles who was arrested is a member of the Colonia Chiques gang, a group dubbed one of the "largest and deadliest gangs" in southern California's Ventura County by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

According to ICE, among those arrested in Philadelphia was a citizen of the Donminican Republic who entered the country illegally and has previous convictions for possession of firearms.

Of the 498 people taken into custody for immigration violations, 317 had criminal convictions, 68 were immigration fugitives, 104 were previously deported and 18 were gang members or affiliates.

He said ICE wants cooperative, respectful relationships with law-enforcement partners "to help prevent risky criminal aliens from being released back onto the streets" and "non-cooperation policies severely undermine that effort".

"Non-cooperation policies severely undermine that effort at the expense of public safety", he added.

Proponents of sanctuary cities, like Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney, say sanctuary policies create trust between police and immigrants, who otherwise might be afraid to report crimes.

ICE said some of the people arrested will face criminal charges for illegal entry and re-entry.

"We are deeply troubled by this politically-motivated and cruel form of immigration enforcement".

In a response, the Acting Director of ICE has stated how they would continue the arrests in areas which hide and shield illegal and criminal immigrants from deportation.

People who have active DACA were not targeted, ICE said. The suspects who are not being federally prosecuted will be processed administratively for removal from the U.S. Those who have outstanding orders of removal, or who returned to the U.S. illegally after being removed, are subject to immediate removal from the country.
